The purchase will make Norway Post the first European buyer of the zero-emission electric van. The contract includes an option for more orders in the future.

The Ford electric van is an updated electric version of the long-wheelbase Transit Connect light commercial vehicle. The van has a top speed of 120 kilometers per hour and a range of up to 130 km on a full charge.

With a carry cargo volume of 3.8 cubic meters and a maximum payload of 500 kilograms, the van is well suited to the postal agency’ predictably short range routes and frequent stops.
